MORE POWER WHEN YOU NEED IT

Duplicate Cleaner has enough features to satisfy even the most demanding power user: find duplicate folders, search inside zip files, advanced filtering, automated selection and much more.

Finding duplicate files

Duplicate Cleaner's straightforward interface makes it a snap to start searching for duplicates. You can narrow your search by the type of file, sizes, dates and more. You can specify which drives and folders to look in, and you even get an option to search inside Zip archives.

You're not on your own when selecting which duplicate files to remove. The Selection Assistant lets you select files by groups, dates, drives, folders and more. You can select a favourite folder, and remove files that duplicate it elsewhere, or maybe select the smallest images, or the lowest quality mp3. Power and flexibility is the key!

Lists of files are all very well, but what if you've just made a copy of a directory? Duplicate Cleaner will show you that in the Duplicate Folder browser. Quickly see duplicated directory trees, and easily mark the ones you don't want to keep.

You can now specify an input folder to not 'Scan against itself'. This means you can compare 'clean' areas (e.g. archives, cd's) against other areas without generating unneeded lists of duplicate files.
You can also save Scan Profiles and recall different settings for different jobs at the touch of a button.

Duplicate Cleaner offers the flexibility to do what you choose with your duplicates: You can delete (Recycle bin optional), you can move or copy them, you can rename them. Advanced users may also be interested in the Hard Linking functionality offered. Of course several safeguards are offered to make sure that important system files and programs aren't deleted.

Find duplicate images

Duplicate Cleaner gives you the power to clean up your image library. Using an advanced visual comparison technique, you can find images that have been rotated, flipped, retouched, resized or saved in a different format. You control how exact or loose you want the comparison to be.

The special built-in image browser allows you to view the pictures in the duplicate group side-by-side, for comparison. This will aid in deciding what to keep. You can also display image and camera tags such as size, date taken, and colour depth.

Image comparison is fast, but to really speed up repeated scanning Duplicate Cleaner will store 'fingerprints' of your images. This way if you scan an image archive again, or scan it against a new folder, the cached fingerprint will be used. This will speed things up by over 90%.

Find duplicate music

You can scan and compare audio files using Duplicate Cleaner. Supported formats are MP3, OGG, WMA, M4A, M4P (iTunes), AAC, FLAC and WAV. Compare same or similar music tags across formats by Artist, Title and Album.

Duplicate Cleaner will list details of any audio it finds, including length, bit rate and sample rate in addition to the usual tags. The Selection Assistant can help you pick which files to remove - for instance the shortest version or lowest quality.

You also have the option to compare just the audio, without the tag information. For instance, if you have two copies of the same track, tagged differently, Duplicate Cleaner should find them both.
